Easy Read Health Cards are an Easy Read resource produced by LD North East to help with health related appointments.

The Health Cards use Easy Read text and pictures to explain what may happen during a medical or health related appointment.

The cards can be used in various health settings to help reduce fears and anxieties, and to help ask and answer questions.

All of the cards are colour coded into sections for each health topic which include:

  • Health Services
  • Pain & Symptoms
  • Support You May Need
  • Health & Lifestyle
  • Women’s Health
  • Men’s Health
  • Checking Your Weight
  • Temperature
  • Blood Pressure
  • Oxygen Levels
  • Breathing Test
  • Stomach Examination
  • Urine & Stool Samples
  • Blood Tests, Diabetes & Vaccines
  • Cannula
  • Peak Flow Test
  • Stool Chart
